THE GRACE OF GIVING

___________



Why Should I Give?

At The Summit Church, we believe what the Bible teaches in (Malachi 3:9-10), and the numerous teaching of Jesus including Matthew 22, about tithing. We teach tithing as an act of worship to God, who has provided us with everything that we have. We give because we love Him and we love people.

 

What Is A Tithe?

A tithe is 10%. In the Bible, the giving of a tithe represents a gift of 10% of the first fruits of one’s increase. The tithe is commanded by God for believers to support the work of the ministry. Just as 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 addresses the heart and intention of those who give, Malachi 3:9-12 also illustrates the blessings available to those who are obedient with the tithe. We are encouraged also to give above the tithe in cheerfulness from the remaining income we are to steward.

 

How Is My Gift Used At The Summit Church?

Your giving envelope and/or online options will reflect the primary funds we use at The Summit Church.

 

Worth Remembering:

YOU can’t take it with you, but you can send it on ahead.

GOD owns everything. I’m His money manager.

MY HEART always goes where I put God’s money.

HEAVEN, not earth, is my home.

GIVING is the only antidote to materialism.

GOD prospers me not to raise my standard of living, but to raise my standard of giving.

GOD will get it to me, to get it through me.
